Question: PO302 Fault Code: Cylinder 2 Misfire

I have 101,000 miles. In the last 3-4 weeks I have received and reset this code about 4 times to see if it consistancy comes back - and it does after a few days. I have ordered a new set of spark plugs and will replace ASAP. If this does not solve the problem, I will swap the COP for cylinder 2 and see if the problem tracks the COP. Any other ideas to try? Also, what is the recomended plug gap for this engine?

Thank you.
